Sprinkle small amounts of the two color of embossing powder you will need to cover your image. Use very small amounts (because you will not be able to safe the extra on this one - SORRY).
Tap off extra embossing powder and heat set. It's that just too cool...

heat Stamp and Glue ink with you heat gun for about 30 seconds, this make your ink sticky for the next step
Add Gold Leaf onto image. Remove extra gold left HINT: all of you extra leaf can be saved, I personal put in all into a tubberware bowl with all other color of leaf and this make a great mix of my leafs..
I like to use this very sad looking brush to remove my extra gold leaf. I only use this brush to do this technique.
I used my Palette Embossing and Watermark Inkpad and Scrolls Work "Solid Holly" stamp to add a watermark image to the red cardstock which is the base of my card.
I matted my main image with gold cardstock after I punch each of the corner with a corner punch. I matted the "Noel" image with Green Cardstock and used a POP UP Glue Dot. Just adhere all your piece together. This word be a really easy card to make for your Christmas Cards this year, so head over to Scrolls Work and purchase some of their stamps. You will be amazed at the prices. all Three stamps for this card are under $10. WOW!!!
